Welcome to
Sawyer's Island

Already one of Riverside’s most highly anticipated neighborhoods, Sawyer’s Island represents our first exploration of the Wando River shoreline. A stunning natural environment, rich in biodiversity and breathtakingly beautiful. And for a fortunate few, a remarkable place to call home.


Introducing Sawyer's Island

Riverside’s first waterfront home sites have been years in the making. Every detail of the Sawyer’s Island  community will be built to complement the Lowcountry’s remarkable beauty.  Shimmering waters. Wading herons. Maritime forest. Expansive views and access to the Wando River. A natural island accessible by boardwalk. Family. Friends. Oyster roasts. Home.

Think of it as your own private island.

Enjoy exclusive access to your own private island, as family and friends gather at the secluded picnic area. Launch your kayak or paddleboard from the island’s dock. Catch crabs and shrimp for dinner. Savor a sunset over a glass of wine. Relax and enjoy the marsh sounds as great blue herons wade along the shoreline. Whatever you do, rest easy in the privacy of the pristine, protected nature that surrounds you. 

Exceptional homes in an exceptional setting

The limited offering of 25 homesites – five of which are dockable – will feature an exclusive selection of waterfront, wooded, and pond homesites for a wide variety of preferences.  Each homesite has been thoughtfully laid out to optimize views, privacy, and natural features inherent to the land.  This collection of homes will be almost entirely surrounded by marshland and permanently protected natural areas, affording buyers unmatched exclusivity and privacy.


Uncompromising design and craftsmanship

Property owners may choose an existing plan from Riverside’s Design Portfolio or custom design your home from the ground up.  Either way, you’ll enjoy working with one of our award-winning builders to tailor your home to your family’s needs.  No matter what you choose, your home will be designed to uncompromising standards, seamlessly connecting the indoors with the outdoors in the tradition of America’s great coastal communities.


All the benefits of a master planned community

Riverside has been thoughtfully designed to embrace outdoor living, with half of the property to remain as open green space for the community. Carolina Park and Riverside offer a variety of resort-style amenities including parks, trails, and a new lakeside swim club. Residents will also have access to an additional community dock and launching point for kayaking, paddle boarding, fishing and exploring the inland waterways along with the Wando River.
